How many miles does a car last

This is hard to answer. it depends on the maintenance, the type of car, and for how long it has been driven.
i recommend checking the maintenance guide in your owner's manual which i believe can be accessed online at most major car website portals (e.g., http://www.chevrolet.com).

can cars last 300 000 miles?

it depends on the car, but most cars can last 300 000 miles, assuming they are serviced throughout the car's life.

the longevity of a car is primarily determined by how many times its engine goes through an oil change. the more oil changes that have been completed with quality oils, the greater will be the likelihood that your vehicle will go over 300 000 miles without needing significant repairs.

is 200000 miles on a car bad?

it sounds as though you're new to cars.

the expert consensus is that there's no magic number of miles that will cause a car to die, but below 200000 miles on a used car would be a red flag for future issues. keep in mind, some cars have scheduled emissions inspections, so the mileage may jump up and down based on what's happening with those emissions tests. a broken engine can lead to tons of problems without these checks happening. there are also ways you can tweak your air-fuel mixture or try other things like fuel injector cleaners that might work until then….you don't need to panic yet!

can a car last 500000 miles?

no. a car's lifespan starts to decrease dramatically after it has been on the road for 100,000 miles. if you were to average 20,000 miles per year in your car then in 12 years or 192,000 total miles- that would be when one of the common repairs like brakes is due (and also about when the timing belts/water pump need replacing). a car can last 500,000 total miles with regular maintenance and upkeep but not if they are neglected.

how many miles on a car is too much?

any car that is used to commute between work and home more than five times a week should be checked out by a mechanic.

the average person will put on about 10,000 miles annually on their car- enough that the gas cost would certainly exceed the cost of hiring a mechanic every year!
